Tod's Stuff - Crossbows - Stone Bows

Custom made functional; stone bows shooting rolled clay balls; made for hunting
birds in trees.

The bows are hand forged and have rolled ends, the strings are linen and the pockets
are leather.

These came to the UK in the early 15thC. and went through a variety of design changes very quickly and became very popular in the 16thC but were widely used until the mid-17thC. They reached their height at this time characterised by the Kugelschnapper type style with the inbuilt cocking lever and settable trigger.

From £1,050.
